Tomato Tortellini Soup

Tomato Tortellini Soup

My friend Janelle gave me this recipe.  We’ve tweaked it a little and it has become a family favorite.
Frozen cheese tortellini makes this soup come together quickly.  It only has to cook in boiling water for about 2 minutes.
It is rainy and cold here today.  I’m not sure where our nice weather has gone.  This comforting soup made the perfect dinner.
My husband and teenage boys don’t think soup is really a meal, so I add chicken to make it a bit more hearty.  This is one they request.
I hope you like it too!
